This is so disrespectful to both Serena and Venus, SEWTA biggest stars...

I donīt think that Federer ever played on an outside court when he was number 1!

Madrid organizers are crazy, they should have put her at least in court 2

At least the tour glamour girl Ivanovic is on center court to save the day

Haha I think it's disrespectful that you referred to Venus Williams simply as "her sister" in your thread title.

Safarova vs Dulgheru as the evening match and Parra Santonja vs Peng on Court ASV while the WS are on Court 3.

Liezel Huber must be l-o-v-i-n-g the fact that she's on a bigger court than the WS. :lol:

Every match on Court 1 or 2 has a Spaniard, except: JJ/Ana, Murray/Mayer? and Lucie/Dulgheru. First one deserves CC. Second one is dudes, and ATP > WTA right now. Third...not sure.

So it's not disrespectful, its just the way things go now: ATP > WTA, Spain > Non-Spain. It's Madrid.

It's Spain and they have different criteria as to what has value and what doesn't.
I don't think people like Serena and Venus are particularly appreciated in that country.

Someone also brought up the fact that Petrova and Skeeza play doubles later that day as well. Their doubles match is scheduled after their singles match. With both of em' playing doubles it makes it easier for them to all be on the same court, so maybe that's why.

:o If they (WS) feel disrespected, and they haven't said so, just go out there and WIN !!! If they or anybody else feels slighted because of a non-center or court 2 appearance, get over it !!! Geez !!!

Trust me if Skeeza and Pertrova didn't both have doubles scheduled on the same day Serena would be on one of the two main show courts, no doubt!! It's all about fitting the doubles into the schedule, nothing more.

Yeah but when the schedule came out they didn't know she lost. Her name was drawn in the schedule as an "or" option- so that could still explain why. It can't be a coincidence that both Skeeza and Petrova play on the same court then after their singles matches conclude the come back on the same court for doubles. That had to be the reasoning, for better or worse.

Which part of COURT 3 is BIGGER than Vicario court you don't understand?
And there is no TV coverage from Vicario court but there is from COURT 3.
SO basically COURT 3 is 2nd court!!!

Do we really need a new topic about court 3 matches every single day of the tournamnet?
There was a similar topic yesterday and another one or two the day before yesterday.

I don't think Court 3 is bigger than the ASV-Court. The latter has 3.500 seats and the first 2.500 seats if I remember correctly.

yeah, but the issue is that tikets to court2 are rarely sold, people with court1 and court2 tickets can come into court.3, so there are always more people in court.3.
Tikets in court2 are more expensive that cheap ones of court1, and scheduled matches are slightly :eek:,so few people buy them.
